1 LILLIE & WARREN WATERMAN 1907 ORIGINAL UNIQUE PAIR OF MATCHED MANUSCRIPT DIARIES HANDWRITTEN BY AN UPSTATE NEW YORK HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM OF DAIRY FARMERS FILLED WITH RURAL COMMERCE AND ECONOMIC DATA OF THE TIMES
WATERVILLE ONEIDA COUNTY NEW YORK 1907 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is a very interesting, uniquely matched pair of original 1907 husband and wife manuscript diaries handwritten by Lillie A. Waterman [nee Lillie A. Harris of Earlville, New York] and her husband of 9 years Warren D. Waterman of Waterville New York. Lillie is the true blue diarist in the family writing nearly every day and Warren does the best he can but sputters out in May. The diaries detail a picture of a rural farming family mostly dependant on selling butter, drawing wood and dealing with the dairy cattle and calves. Lillie never fails to mention the weather, her daily chores, visitors, sales of butter etc. and the hundreds of other things a rural wife deals with. Warren while he writes does only a slightly lesser job and it is very interesting to read side by side the same day's entries. Between the two there is a great deal of commercial and economic information of the times, genealogical data and a great deal of the local events including births, deaths, accidents etc. relative to the Oneida, Utica, Waterville and Graycraft New York areas. The diaries measure approx. 6" x 4" and in one case the text block has parted, the other is loose but intact. Overall G+.
